Meet AIVA – the female humanoid artist. She is in her mid-thirties, young and beautiful. But not only that, she is also unbelievably creative. This female AI artist, who was designed by a cis-male engineering team, has the task of contributing more diversity to the art world and to offer a female perspective.

AIVA is studying the male nude, preparing preliminary sketches for her next masterpiece. Exploring different postures in male nude painting, she is examining masculinity in its diverse forms and shapes.
